Dear Premier Ford, On behalf of SEIU Healthcare and our 60,000 members in Ontario, I am calling on the Ontario government to reconsider Bill 47. If passed, this bill will be a setback for hard-working women and men in our province.
Richmond Hill, Ont. (October 12, 2018) – Close to 150 paramedics employed by County of Lambton Emergency Medical Services will be working under their Essential Service Agreement starting at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, October 13. This comes after months of stalled negotiations with their employer.
Noel is a registered practical nurse (RPN) at the Yee Hong Centre in Mississauga and chief steward with SEIU Healthcare. She started working at Yee Hong as a personal support worker (PSW) in 2004 and decided to make the transition to nursing after finding inspiration in the leadership and compassion of her colleagues.
SEIU Healthcare is excited to celebrate Healthcare Foodservice Workers Week. This is a great opportunity to acknowledge the hard work of the foodservice associates, the dishwashers, the servers, the chefs, the registered dietitians, and the other professionals in the field. These caring individuals help ensure that patients, families, and staff in healthcare facilities are kept fit and well-nourished.
